my deep apollgies for not being able to focus on this issue. I am co-organizing the IGF USA and am absolutely drowning in work related to attendance, name badges, and speakers for that event. I know that sometimes comments are filed late, and in the past, when the BC was going to file late, we sometimes submitted a placeholder noting that. I see a point in Mr. Palage's draft below that I believe would have strong endorsement from BC members -- the importance of accurate WHOIS data. 
Count me in to offer edits by tomorrow a.m. if I see any needed to Mr.Palage's draft.  I know that this can't be voted in less than 14 days .. do we have that much time?

> While the BC will await these survey results and other additional fact

> rights through the UDRP. 
> The BC apologizes for the untimely submission of this comment, but its
> members and leadership look forward to meaningfully participating in the
> upcoming forum at the ICANN annual meeting in Seoul.
